Speed matters! Dr Weiner contributes to research showing that temporal frequency is an organizing principle of visual cortex
With colleagues Anthony Stigliani and Dr Kalanit Grill-Spector of Stanford University, Dr Weiner contributed to a research publication showing that the temporal frequency is an organizing principle of visual cortex.

IAN's Dr. Kevin Weiner and Stanford colleague Dr. Kalanit Grill-Spector published a paper that details how the brain's face processing network evolved across species. Full text can be found here.
Dr Melina Uncapher and Dr Kevin Weiner each author a chapter in the latest edition of The Cognitive Neurosciences textbook. Dr Uncapher's chapter discusses memory, and Dr Weiner's chapter discusses visual perception. The textbook is a benchmark in the field of cognitive neuroscience, and has been described as continuing a 'remarkable tradition of chronicling the advances in cognitive neuroscience and presciently anticipating the future' (Dr. Marcus Raichle, professor of radiology and neurology, Wash U). It is widely used as the textbook for graduate level courses. More details found on the MIT Press website. Dr. Uncapher collaborated with Stanford colleagues Dr. Alan Gordon and Dr. Anthony Wagner; Dr. Weiner collaborated with Stanford colleague Dr. Kalanit Grill-Spector.
IAN's Dr. Kevin Weiner published a paper this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), helping to resolve a century-old controversy about a white matter bundle in the brain called the vertical occipital fasciculus (VOF). Dr. Weiner collaborated with Stanford colleagues Drs Brian Wandell, Jason Yeatman, Franco Pestilli, Ariel Rokem, and Aviv Mezer.

IAN's CEO and Director of Research, Dr. Melina Uncapher, spoke today at IFTF's Future of Learning event about the emerging field of educational neuroscience, and how a neuroscientific understanding of learning may shape the future of education.
In the midst of Ledecky’s dominance, Phelps’ comeback, and the rest of Pan Pacs hubbub, I ask the readers of SwimSwam: Would we all love swimming so much if the bottom of the pool were red?
Blue Mind, a book about the brain on water, tackles this question and more importantly, sheds light on why we don’t mind staring at a black line on the bottom of the pool for hours and hours on end. The answer is quite simple: our brains love it....(read article)
Dr. Anthony Wagner of Stanford University spoke in the National Bar Association's 89th annual convention about work from his lab that is positioned at the intersection of law and neuroscience. This work included findings from Dr. Melina Uncapher on how our brains respond differently to faces from our own race vs. other races, and how that may affect memory. The findings have implications for eyewitness memory that includes other-race faces.
